Dwyane Wade Played Basketball With a 90-Year-Old Grandma

This is not a joke about Juwan Howard. Promise.

Illuminada Magtoto was facing her 90th birthday earlier this month and she realized she had one item left on her bucket list: playing one-on-one against Dwyane Wade. So she uploaded a plea on YouTube.

And Wade agreed. Though, they didn't actually play one-on-one, but they did do some assist drills.

"This gives me life," said Wade. "This gives me life."
